The game holds a number of features that include Rolling Reels, Expanding Wilds, Free Spins, Multipliers of up to 8x your bet and of course feature a heavy dose of ice hockey action and entertainment.

The bonus of Rolling Reels can produce multiple wins spin after spin and can be triggered in both the slot’s base game or free spins feature.

2. Ice Hockey™ slot by Playtech

The international stage is set for the most competitive ice hockey tournament in the world. This incredible video slot by Playtech offers a dynamic presentation of the ice hockey game as we love to see it. At the start of the game, you get to pick your country. Your choices include Finland, Germany, Russia, Canada, the USA, Sweden, and the Czech Republic. The colossal slot goes further by allowing players to win both ways, paying out on matching symbols that go right to left and the standard left to right. 

The game’s jackpot pays out up to 10,000 times your betting value, making the potential return £1,000,000!

Helping players to reach this payout is the game’s 12 free spins bonus feature. This includes the Pass the Puck bonus that gives any player symbol on the slot grid a x3 value that is added to any win line.

It is richly designed in classic Playtech style. This is a UK-based software company responsible for the largest online progressive jackpot series called Age of the Gods


3. Hockey Hero™ slot by Push Gaming

It’s a packed crowd in here and the energy is electrifying. Hockey Hero™ is a slot that has the potential to make you the star. This is a beautifully created and designed online slot that holds a 4×5 grid and will assist you with a total of 40 paylines.

The other great feature is the game’s Hold and Respin Feature. The game has expanding reels, full blocks of a symbol that cover a whole reel. When any number of these land, you can choose to hold them in place, locking them in place for a free re-spin.
